Nicholas Stoller (born 19 March 1976) is an English–American screenwriter and director. He is known mainly for directing the 2008 comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and its 2010 spin-off/sequel, Get Him to the Greek.

Biography

Né à Londres, il a grandi aux États-Unis, à Miami. Étudiant à Harvard, il écrit pour le journal satirique The Harvard Lampoon. C'est Judd Apatow qui lance sa carrière d'abord comme scénariste sur la série Les Années campus, puis sur le film Braqueurs amateurs.

Stoller fait ses premiers pas en tant que réalisateur pour la comédie Sans Sarah rien ne va, produite par Apatow et écrite par Jason Segel, également acteur principal. Le film obtient un succès public et critique. Cette première collaboration entre Segel et Stoller a fait naître des projets, dont le Muppet Movie, pour Disney.

En 2010, il signe son second long-métrage comme réalisateur avec Get Him to the Greek, spin-off de Sans Sarah rien ne va, avec Russell Brand qui reprend le rôle d'Aldous Snow après le premier opus.

In 2008, British cheeky chappy rock star Aldous Snow (Russell Brand) releases an album and a titular single — "African Child", which is a commercial and critical failure. In an interview, despite having been teetotal and free of drugs, along with his pop-star girlfriend Jackie Q (Rose Byrne), she drunkenly declares they have a boring life in an interview. He relapses — which effectively ends his relationship with her, makes him lose custody of their son, Naples, sabotages his career and makes him become a slacker. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) works as a talent scout at Pinnacle Records, a successful record company. He lives with his girlfriend, Daphne (Elisabeth Moss), a doctor. Pinnacle Records is performing badly as a result of poor record sales, and the head of the company, Sergio Roma (Sean Combs), asks for ideas. Green proposes that Aldous Snow play at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on the tenth anniversary of his legendary performance there in 1999.
